Once I've got some serious progression on DTL in Feb/Mar, I plan to rewrite

create a simpler analogue to ATL for D+COM.

I don't see me writing any GUI programs for a long time, not until there are
wizards and all that crap that I can get with Visual C++ at the moment.
Charles, what's the state of DIDE wrt all this workflow gadgetry ... ???

Not this release , but the next one will have Add Project Wizard , and Ill

Sunday, thats fishing day.  Fisihing is real popular in america is popular
else where ? ).

I've never written a win32 MDI and it seems pretty complex , the only sample
I could find was IconPro in the Platform SDK, does anyone have a simple
Notepad type application written in straight C ?

Another big help would be the DTL.  BTW I just looked at those shell
extensions ( I remember reading the remote reboot article ) very cool!

I've tried other languages, and D seems to be the easiest to do this in.

It's pretty popular here in Aus, although sea fishing mainly. Amusingly, if you're you have a perverse sense of humour anyway, is the fact that sea-fishing kills more people in Australia than all other sports combined. That's one in the eye for people who contend that fishing, like golf, is not a sport (they're correct in the case of golf, of course). If you're at serious risk of dying for your pastime, I think you can call it a sport if you want.
 I've never written a win32 MDI and it seems pretty complex , the only

 Notepad type application written in straight C ?

It's been several years since I've done so. I trust you've already learned that Win32 provides specific MDI frame and child classes. You should build your solution on these. (If you're using MFC, it's pretty simple IIRC)
 Another big help would be the DTL.

I'm sure it will. I'm look forward to doing this. My next book is on STL, so doing DTL at the same time will provide a nice counterpoint, I think. And hopefully once that one's well underway we can persuade the publisher that the time is ripe for a book on D. Before that happens, though, we'll need to take it to the next "level", in terms of capabilities and exposure. To that end, Walter and I have, between us, four articles on the subject coming out in the next few months, and Walter's doing SDWest. But having great IDDE(s) and libraries, and some real production quality tools/products built in it, which I hope will happen in the next six months, will be more compelling still. Of course, getting contributions for The D Journal would be good, but I guess it's still too early
 BTW I just looked at those shell
 extensions ( I remember reading the remote reboot article ) very cool!

Thanks! I think so too. I couldn't survive in Windows without the Grab Path shell extension, and I use the Remote Reboot and File Touch pretty much daily as well. I've several more planned - although I'm always happy to receive requests! - but am deferring implementation until I can do them in D.
